...That the Coalition Government ARE the people who have created this ideological farce of a policy that replaces the Disability Living Allowance with PIP, thereby almost certainly giving many thousands of genuine claimants of the DLA benefit the "pip" in more ways than one?
Trust the Sun news-rag to come up with a story like this that hands undeserved plaudits to two of the most vicious, hard-line politicians seated on the government front bench, both of whom have little knowledge of what ANY form of disability entails in the lives of those folk suffering disability - the vast majority of genuine claimants, and NOT as the writer of this article claims to be scroungers and cheats!
"MOD Civil Servants" responsible for the advent of reviews of military personnel’ benefit claims? Any mildly informed news-hound would surely know that benefits policy is dictated by government through the office and staff of the minister responsible for those benefits: in this case the totally uncaring Mr. Iain Duncan-Smith, failed past-leader of the Tory Party and, apparently, heading for yet more failure in his current government placement.
As for a pat on the back from the RBL for Cameron and Co., I’m sure that the majority of its membership are well aware by now of the suffering being caused by Coalition policies; mainly to the poorest citizens, but as austerity policies bite deeper and the screw-ups become more apparent, most of those folk earning less than £150,000 per annum will lose out in some way or another. Don’t back ’em - sack ’em!
